Australian versus international Actors

Certain roles may be cast from countries other than Australia where there is the potential of Co-Production. So, you can suggest Actors from all over the world but not for the lead role of Lt. Commander Michael Dowd.

  1. Casting of the lead
    Can we cast an Indigenous Australian in this role?

    It may be simpler to cast the role of Che Amiri as an Indigenous Australian rather than trying to cast the lead role of Lt Commander Michael Dowd.

    Given international travel is looking slim for quite some time, the choice of casting may be better off focused on Internationals right here at home.

  2. Also very keen on Jane Harber as the Commodore. This role may however need an older actor. The age range needs to be 40s.

  3. If we don’t go Indigenous for DOWD we could reach out to Chris Hemsworth. Thinking he would be very excited to play this role and that could bring greater financing to the project due to the reach.
